Did u guys run it at a track? I find it hard to be that fast on those tires and not having a rollcage (can't run that fast w/o it at the track)

I had a friend that had one that looked like a total pos on purpose that ran 11.5's It was gutted...with a worked 350 small block. I had an 85 Iroc myself.

Well its around 10-11. but its fast. i know what for a fact. The car was set up as a drag car... before my weird cousin got his hands on it and.. hrmm. how can i put it...... ruined it. He also said the orginal owner said with drag slicks on it could do wheelies.. but that was back when it wasnt riced out.

get a BFH, a cutting torch, and a welder and you can make anything fit, add some bondo and paint it it will look good.

Well, the truck is in the shop now! getting new wheel bearings and my other tires put on, and a inspection aswell. And i finally found out what bfh stand for after watching some stacey david's gearz :p BFH = Big Fooking Hammer , And also my 2.3 is pretty guttless... any ways to perk it up for cheap, until i can afford a 302?

Well, it didnt work out. the guy wanted me to doo too much for too litte money. I told him to keep his money and i'll wait for someone else to come along. tomoro im going to try and get some; new seats,3M sticky adheisve to fix the headliner,a Parking brake handle, power steering fluid, and some paint...Cause mr.Ithinkiknoweverythingaboutcars Says that all those little things make the truck look worse than a pile of..... shhii....poop. So, i just need to fix the truck up enough that someone will buy it for $1200 or $1300, and my dad will throw in the rest for the other 4x4 ranger

Well guys, the old beige ranger has been shot down. my aunt broke it somehow. it wont catch or anything. so we're thinking its the fuel pump and we're replacing that as we speak. but since the truck is now my dads baisically... the old green ranger might be getting another kick at the can! , my dad knows a professional mechanic who will do the work to get it going and inspected for us for cheap! So keep your fingers crossed guys! I'll post recent pics of it tomoro. :icon_twisted:

lol, well my 1st ranger i couldent afford to fix, due to only being in jr.high, then my 2nd one i was tricked into thinking it was good but it was not.. BIGGST f**king mistake of my life.. now i cant get rid of the damned thing.. then the beige ranger my dad bought back from his friend since we needed a pickup, he said it was mine, then took it and said it was his... So, things are really confusing with him... But today is my b-day and im going to buy another ranger with my OWN moneh... and have it in my name.. Not my dads

Sandy's Watching you....


New speaker/Sub combo's sound effin epic!


But, Sandy [Thats the name i finally picked for her lol] , now needs; A balljoint,Clutch[almost nothing left],shocks,coil springs,U-joint,tires,And some paint ._.
I'ma try to nab the coils,springs,and tires off the green truck. And New-boston Auto told me they'll get me a balljoint and put it in for $40. plus she needs a tuneup badly in 3rd gear with the pedal to the floor, it only does like 45-60kmh and gets about 800-1100rpms. Engine is veeeerrrry lazy. I wanna do a 302 swap so bad now >_<
